This private training program is designed for dogs who react poorly toward other dogs when on a leash. (Growling, lunging, barking, etc.) The goal of this program is to teach your dog to pay more attention to you and relax in the presence of other dogs. This program will strengthen the bond between you and your dog. Lessons are held at a variety of locations to allow for practice in the presence of other dogs. (This program is not available in the summer. It is simply too hot for the dogs to work. It is stressful for the dogs under the best of circumstances and the intense desert heat and scorching sidewalks and asphalt can lead to heat stress and burns on your dog's paws. Short nosed breeds are even more susceptible to breathing difficulties and are not able to cool down. If you walk your dog, it is recommended that you do so extremely early in the morning or late in the evening when the heat is less of an issue and there are fewer dogs in the environment that are easier to avoid until the issue can be addressed.)
